Good Sunday morning. It is snowing in Vt. It is really a pretty snow.
Today I would like to talk about my wonderful carding machine. A carding machine combs wool fibers into soft wonderful rovings. Once it is nicely carded then it can be dyed. Wool, mohair and alpaca take dye nicely.
I have a Louet Jr. It is perfect for my needs. It is a hand crank so it is a bit of work.
I am epecially fond of Romney and Cormo sheep's wool for my rovings. It is soft and has a nice luster and felts beautifully. Check out my roving page on www.mohairandwool.com and check out my needle felting kits on the the kit page. Felting needles and core wool can be found on the supply page. Have a great day,Gloria
